Solea bleekeri Boulenger, 1898, a junior synonym of Pegusa nasuta (Pallas, 1814), with the recognition and redescription of Solea turbynei Gilchrist, 1904 (Pleuronectiformes: Soleidae)

Josiane Vachon, Martine Desoutter & François Chapleau
Solea bleekeri Boulenger, 1898, which was described from a single specimen, is not a valid species; the holotype of this nominal species belongs to Pegusa nasuta (Pallas, 1814). Solea turbynei Gilchrist, 1904 is recognized and redescribed to include all specimens of Solea that have been traditionally described as belonging to S. bleekeri. Solea simonensis Bonde, 1922 based on a single anomalous specimen is confirmed as a junior synonym of S. turbynei.
